|How To Make Your Own Natural Hair Butter by Veriongroup: 2:03am On Jan 11, 2018|
Hair Butter Recipe
Begin with some butter of your choice, like shea, cocoa or mango, and your favorite hair oil. However, be careful where you purchase your butters and oils as you may not be getting the purest thing. Since it’s an all natural butter we want, be especially weary of commercial oils that are really laden with silicone and mineral oil with only a few drops of the actual oil. Also keep in mind what you want to use your butter for. If you want to create a hair butter, then mixing in heavy oils with an already heavy butter like shea may leave your strands weighed down and oily.
Likewise, if you are trying to create a body butter, using light oils may not be heavy enough to keep your skin moisturized, especially in the winter months. Before even mixing, plan out what proportions of oil to butter you want to use keeping in mind that less liquid oil will make a firmer thicker butter and more oil will keep it fluffy and light.
When heating your butters and oils, never place them directly into the pan as it may cause them to boil and burn. Instead, place about a cup and a half of water in a small pan and place a glass bowl over it then place your ingredients in the glass bowl. This is called a double boiler and is a much gentler way of heating up your oils and melting your butter.
